Little Leaf

Little Leaf is an owner-designed and built tiny house on wheels. It’s 20-feet long and has an 8’x7′ loft. Space heating, water heating, and the stove are powered by propane. Like an RV, the house has an on-grid power setup, but can go off-grid for several days. Priority electrical systems, like the furnace exhaust fan, carbon […]

Samantha and Robert’s Shedsistence

Samantha and Robert built their 24-foot 204 square foot tiny house on weekends over 14 months – and WOW! Material cost was $30,000. Nice! Judging from the incredibly high quality of the house, they’ve got a lot of sweat equity in their home. Just check out these interior details. This is a great example of […]

L’Odyssée – French Tiny House

This 217 square foot tiny house was built by Baluchon, a tiny house company in Nantes, France. I really like the way the white walls and different woods work together to brighten and define the space. It has two lofts, and an unusual design feature there too. One loft, accessed by stairs, is more like a […]

Students Build a Solar Powered Tiny House

In 2015, students at REALM Charter High School in Berkeley built two identical solar-powered 100 square foot tiny houses. The students worked with experienced architects & builders and in conjunction with Studio H – a non-profit organization that teaches young people to design and build their future using heart, hands, and hammers. The houses are […]

This is what a $25K Tiny House looks like

When the tiny house movement was new, $25K tiny homes were common. In fact owner-builders often reported spending $15K to $25K to build their homes themselves. These days, with all the tiny house hype on television and luxury tiny homes popping-up, it seems like there are more and more $75K tiny houses – which makes […]

Adam and Sian’s Handmade House Truck

The images here are from this new mini-doc by Happen Films. Happen films was founded by Jordan, a documentary filmmaker currently working on the film called, A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity. He also regularly makes short films about permaculture, tiny houses, voluntary simplicity, and sustainable living for the Happen Films YouTube Channel. In this […]

Living Tiny Legally by Tiny House Expedition (Watch Now)

The folks at Tiny House Expedition have been touring the US in their tiny home. Finding ways to live legally in a tiny house is one of the things they’ve been talking to people about around the country. They’ve filmed these conversations and have produced a fantastic educational docs-series called Living Tiny Legally – part […]

Nooga Blue Sky by Tiny House Chattanooga

This luxury 24-foot tiny house was built by Tiny House Chattanooga. If you were at this year’s Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado Springs, you probably saw this house in person. If you missed that event, you can see a video tour below made by Derek ‘Deek’ Diedricksen. The home’s structure is strong, lightweight, and well […]

Luke & Tina’s Basecamp Tiny House

Somewhere near Beaverton, Oregon on a wooded lot, Luke & Tina and their three dogs live in this 204 square foot tiny house. They call it Basecamp. Inside you’ll find a living room, kitchen, bathroom, loft bedroom, and ample storage. There is also kennel space, hidden doggie dens, and a water bowl that is fed by rainwater. Outside is […]

Arched Roof Tiny House by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses

I really like this curved roof house by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses. It should be much easier to tow since air would stream over the top. The house is also only 16-feet long – shorten than most folks want these days – but very workable for someone wanting more mobility. Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses also builds larger homes […]
